If you’ve been a reader of Design Milk for awhile, you might be pretty familiar with Venetian brand Maison 203. Besides 3D printed jewelry, they’ve been collaborating with designers on a series of clutches (first and second) that are entirely 3D printed and they’ve just launched the third one, which was designed by Odo Fioravanti. Bern, made exclusively of 3D printed sintered nylon, was inspired by the urban landscape of the Swiss city that shares its name.
An oval shape is the base for the bag with rounded “blades” that undulate over the exterior to form a dramatic linear pattern. The visually dynamic clutch results in an optical effect that changes depending on what angle you’re viewing it from. If you’re interested in more than just the clutch, there’s an entire Bern collection featuring a similar aesthetic.
The Bern clutch will be presented at Maison et Objet this month and will soon be available in metallic black, copper, and gold, at their flagship store in Venice and online at maison203.com.
